. this is the aftermath of that attack. on september 14, the bodies of chris stevens and two others were returned home. their coffins were met at andrews air force base and that is where we pick up the story of tyrone woods father. he was there as well. he recounted to the president and secretary of state. here is part of his interview. >> when he came over to our little area, you know, i could tell that he just mumbled that he was sorry. his face was looking at me. his eyes were looking over my shoulder like you could not look me in the eye. it was not a sincere i am really sorry that your son died. he was totally insincere with the i'm sorry. it was like shaking hands with a dead fish. you know, it just didn't feel right. now it is coming out but apparently the white house situation room was watching our people die as this was happening. when i heard that this morning, this is something i was really upset with. i hope that the country does not forget this. hillary came over and she did the same thing. she separately came over and i gave her a hug and shook her hand. she did not appear to be one bit
-ahead to go back over to the embassy that perhaps they could have gotten ambassador stevens out alive. i'm not happy to say that, but i'm very dissatisfied with what happened in washington, the top leadership of this country. our military and our agents and our people out there deserve better. megyn: captain nash, you have to look at this in the greater context. these guys in libya, they knew they didn't have adequate security and they were requesting more from washington. they were requesting just to keep what they had and they were told no. the security was being reduced steadily. the british ambassador had an attempt made on his life. the brits shut down that their consulate. the red cross pulled out of libya. our ambassador in his diary was documenting his fears, he believed he was upon an al qaeda hit list. while the navy seals are begging for permission to save him, the permission was denied. how does that happen? >> that scenario i just laid out, megyn, just screams malfeasance. we spend a tremendous amount of money on our intelligence community and military. we have all the tools
his death and the death of ambassador stephens and -- stevens and others? to put that failure in context, after the first 9/11, the bush administration organized the full scale of invasion of afghanistan in just over three weeks. it's taken obama three weeks to send fbi agents to benghazi. so we're sending a signal of weakness and paralysis, and as we learned on september 11th 2001 and 2012, weakness is provocative. megyn: julie, pat smith's grief is real, but i don't want to make this all about her n. the same way brian terry's family grieves for him in the fast and furious operation, but that story's not entirely about him. it's about our government and its decisions and its honesty and transparency with the american people. and, you know, having witnessed those hearings yesterday, do you think that there are legitimate questions still out there about whether there was adequate security, whether they responded to the demands being made for more security on the ground at our consulate in benghazi and whether this administration has been transparent and open and truthful with
. there are now four justices in their 70s, route bader ginsberg and steven breyer were appointed by president clinton. scalia and kennedy are both 76 appointed by reagan. when asked presidential politics do not impact their decisions about when they will retire but it's highly likely the next president is going to have the opportunity to make multiple nominations. weeks ago governor romney said this about the supreme court, quote i hope to appoint justices for the supreme court that will follow the law and the constitution and it would be my preference that they reverse row v wade. many watchers say a second term for president obama would reach further left to future nominees. >> he may reach out for someone who doesn't have a track record for judicial opinions. someone who is serving in politics who doesn't have that long pedestrian today kraoe of writing jew judicial decisions, but who the president will be fairly confident will share his positions on liberal issues. >> it doesn't matter how much the president vets any tomorrow knee, once on the bench it's a lifetime appointment and they as
in an attack on our diplomatic post in this benghazi. among those killed was our ambassador, chris stevens, as well as foreign service officer sean smith. we are still notifying the families of the others who were killed. and today the american people stand united in holding the families of the four americans in our thoughts and in our prayers. the united states condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. we're working with the government of libya to secure our diplomats. i've also directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world. and make no mistake, we will work with the libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people. since our founding, the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence, none. the world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts. already many libyans have joined us in doing so, and this attack will not break

, not benghazi and therefore despite his claims he spoke with ambassador stevens every day he didn't know what was happening in benghazi and wasn't in a position to speak to that. >> you treat libya as a whole. benghazi is an offshoot of tripoli. if they are going to try to discredit with impeccable experience like colonel wood. you have a long hearing. eric nordstrom will also testify to this and we have documents other sorts of things. look at the results. we have a dead ambassador. we have four dead americans. we couldn't even get the fbi in there for weeks. i couldn't go as a member of congress because it was still so dangerous. how the white house and the state department thinks everything is peachy king because this guy is overstating the experience. we have four dead americans. megyn: who are the critical witnesses tomorrow? >> eric snored strom, both are security professionals providing realtime relays back to the department of state, which consequently would go into the white house as well. and then you are going to have charlene lam in charge of the physical infrastructure. the embas
in an attack, including chris stevens, even some top senate democrats have insisted on more information being provided to our lawmakers on the security that was in place and ambassador was the first to be killed and more than 30 years. last night, after stephanie cutter gave that interview, our own bret baier gave questions out. >> are you suggesting that we are playing politics with this? because four people are dead. >> absolutely. this administration, let me just get this out. this administration has treated this entire tragedy with the utmost seriousness to get to the bottom of the attack, hold the perpetrators accountable and make sure that it never happens again. that is why we are being responsible. megyn: joining me now is alan colmes. he is host of the alan colmes radio show. and mike gallagher is a fox news contributor and author of 50 things liberals love to hate. this has managed to set things up fire. now, some are saying that she needs to resign because she apparently doesn't get that four americans were assassinated and that is why people are upset, not because of mitt romney i
? >> let me say that there is a memorial service today for ambassador stevens and our sympathies go out to his families and the families of all of those affected by this terrible terrorist attack in benghazi. ultimately the responsibility falls and lies with president obama. there are a number of questions about the administration's actions, not only after the terrorist attack in benghazi on september 11, but also before. and the american people deserve answers. one of the things that distinguishes an open democratic society like ours from the secretive governments of authoritarian societies is we are allowed to question the official version of events. what we learned in this case is the official version of events was terribly wrong. not just wrong with respect to how many attackers participated in this terrorist event or the time that it began, but with respect to the very nature of what happened. megyn: there are two issues here. they have responses on both. how did this happen, how did four americans wind up dead in libya in that the state department is investigating, others are inve
to leave, they couldn't stay because of the smoke. there were some reports ambassador stevens may have died or been seriously affected by smoke inhalation. then they got in the car. there was a chase. they avoid an attempted ambush and they arrived at the second place, the an ex-and that's where d the annex and that's where the two navy seals were and they fought valiantly and were murdered nonetheless. and that happened 7 hours later. now the u.s. military or somebody is telling us they couldn't send that jet 480 miles away, they couldn't do it because we didn't have permission from the libyans? >> on this thing i'm going to have a tendency not to second guess these guys. the amount of facts they have pales by comparison to the facts we have right now. we know that consulate was overwhelmed rather rapidly and what rescued the people there was the security force came down from the annex with some libyans and got the people who were still alive to evacuate them to that annex. then a battle ensued at that annex. the people at that annex are in direct communication with their headquarters. wee
. remember, two navy seals, a state department staffer and ambassador chris stevens were killed there on 9/11 of this year. the obama administration initially suggested the violence was sparked by anger over an anti-muslim film posted in part on the internet, but senior u.s. intelligence sources later said this was a deliberate and organized terror attack, and they told fox news that the administration knew that, was informed of that within 24 hours, leaving the question about why ambassador susan rice was sent out to the sunday shows -- among other administration officials -- to say something very different. coming up in minutes, curks t mcfarlane joins us on new revelations about the security at our embassy just before this attack and a dreadful situation in syria right now. ♪ megyn: but back, now, to our top story today, the fallout from last night's presidential debate. earlier pollster frank luntz spoke to 24 voters from the denver area who watched it. here's what they told him about what they saw. >> megyn, we came to ground zero, the suburbs of denver, colorado. in fact, the subur
